Thrifty Dish Liquid Container

I had a nice pretty hand soap pump container that I had gotten from my niece. When it was empty, I filled it with dish washing liquid soap and I leave that on top of the sink to be used for either hands or dishes. I have used this container like this for a few years now and just love it. When empty I just refill with dish washing liquid. It keeps my sink very neat and clean at all times.

This is one of the most frugal kitchen tips around. I've found that since I started using a pump dispenser at the kitchen sink I use far less liquid to wash the dishes!

Right now I'm using a dispenser I rinsed (several times) after using up all the hand wash liquid. I'm keeping an eye out for a second hand ceramic or metal dispenser to replace the one I'm using now because the current one wasn't meant for long term use-the plastic is becoming brittle with repeated refills and the sides have a tendency to collapse. Hopefully I'll find a ceramic or metal one soon in one of the second-hand shops.

When I do dishes, I use a brush to get all the solids off the dishes quickly under running hot water. Then I wet a sponge and shut the water off. I put a small amount of dish soap on the wet sponge (not the dishes) and am able to soap up ALL the dishes I just brushed. The soapy sponge takes care of any remaining residue not removed by the brushing.


Then I rinse the all of them at the end and air dry them in the dish drainer.

Also, I never stack the dishes when taking them to the sink so I only have to worry about one surface to clean, since I did not get food on the bottom of the dishes in addition to the top (although I do give it a quick swipe with the soapy sponge).
